The latest Covid-19 situation facing Ireland will be discussed when the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) meets on Thursday.
With only weeks to go until Christmas, health officials are meeting to discuss whether any new measures are needed to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Ministers have sounded a note of cautious optimism in recent days that rates of Covid-19 in Ireland have stabilised, despite the identification of the new Omicron variant in Ireland on Wednesday,.
It is expected that health officials will discuss whether new measures for the hospitality sector are needed, ahead of the festive season.
According to the latest figures, 117 patients with Covid-19 remain in intensive care.
Earlier, Health Minister Stephen Donnelly put forward legislation to permit the reintroduction of hotel quarantine if deemed necessary.
"The threat of the emergence of variants of the disease has not gone away," Mr Donnelly told the Dail.
He said that the legislation puts the Government in a "better position to react quickly".
Addressing a meeting of the Fine Gael parliamentary party on Wednesday, Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said that the situation is "stable or improving slightly".
He said the country is doing "substantially better" than Nphet's optimistic models for case numbers, hospital admissions and deaths.
